As many of you know, I recently moved to Vancouver. First order of business: find someplace to sail. Vancouver has lots of sailing options, but if you are looking for dinghy sailing on the cheap, the place to go is the Jericho Sailing Center Association, a non-profit community center for all types of non-powered watersports. Jericho hosts a number of clubs, as well as providing individual boat storage and launching. They have a truly amazing facility with a restaurant and bar, and a balcony providing stellar views of the English Bay and the North Shore Mountains. I'm afraid to say that, at least in terms of view, it beats CSC's bench.
When you subscribe to the blog, we will send you an e-mail when there are new updates on the site so you wouldn't miss them.
I actually came to CSC from the UBC Sailing club. I loved the Jericho sailing center's facilities, having a hot shower or grabbing a burger after a long sailing or windsurfing session was great. The wind is unfortunately no where near as good as SF though.
If you're ever looking for food nearby the Discovery Cafe is cheaper (and imo better) than the restaurant in the sailing center.
